Welcome to My Substack!
All of my writing and my podcast here on Substack will always be free. No paywalls! I want us to reach as many people as possible, and I’d love for you to share this work and these ideas far and wide.
At the same time, if you’d like to help support my work and give us the ability to produce more of it, then please consider contributing $5 a month as a member of our team (or $50 for the whole year). And for those of you who do become paid members, I’d love to have you join me for these special member events, which this Substack platform will bring to you:
● Mike’s Movie Night – Members will be invited to virtually watch with me a brilliant, hilarious, profound movie I’ve picked out for us all to enjoy. These occasional movie nights will often include guests such as directors, actors or some of my “special” movie-loving friends.
● As a member, you will also be the first to see a Sneak Peek of my next film, TV show or stage project. As one of our monthly supporters, you will get to view my works-in-progress or be part of the first test audience of my new film and give input.
● You will be invited to participate with me in live, video Q&A sessions — where you can ask me anything you want!
Additionally, in the name of keeping this platform free of trolls, racists (and the occasional death threat), the comment section will only be accessible to members. I hope this comments section can serve what should be its purpose everywhere—fostering connection and providing a place for good discussion. Those who wish to troll me will be encouraged to keep doing so on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit or MySpace.
About Michael Moore
Michael Moore was born in Flint, Michigan. He is an Eagle Scout, a former seminarian and, at age 18, became the youngest elected official in the country.
At 22, he founded the Flint Voice, a nationally-recognized alternative newspaper.
In 1989, Michael made his first film, the ground-breaking "Roger & Me," which gave birth to the modern-day documentary movement. Moore went on to break the documentary box office record two more times with his 2002 Oscar-winning film, "Bowling for Columbine" and the Palme d'Or-winning "Fahrenheit 9/11”, still the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Other notable films include the Oscar-nominated "Sicko," “Capitalism: A Love Story,” “Where To Invade Next” and “Fahrenheit 11/9.”
Michael won the Emmy Award for his prime-time NBC series "TV Nation" and is one of America's top-selling nonfiction authors, with such books as "Stupid White Men" and "Dude, Where's My Country?" and “Here Comes Trouble.”
Michael lives in Traverse City, Michigan, where he founded the Traverse City Film Festival and two art house movie palaces, the State Theatre and the Bijou by the Bay.
He is the host of the “Rumble with Michael Moore” podcast and is rumored to be the replacement to Alex Trebek’s replacements as host of “Jeopardy.”
